By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. To begin, please watch our video: How to Do Circular Brick Stitch On a Hoop Earring. In this video you will see how to do the first row of brick stitch. Begin by cutting off 6 feet of Fireline and then begin at the top front of the earring about a 1/4 inch from the top. (See photo for reference) Then add 57 beads. This should take you to about 1 inch from the back of the earring. You can adjust this to suit your style.
  2. Then to see how to complete the decorative edge finish, please watch our video: How to Add a Decorative Edge to Brick Earrings using 15/0 Seed Beads. You will also see how to tie off the thread at the end of this video.
